Gardening

My husband and I have a unique living situation.

We live in a basement apartment (S calls it our hobbit hole) beneath a very generous family. We pay them rent, but not much. Instead of paying full rent, we help them out with their new venture in organic gardening.

Our landlords are just starting out as gardeners, so they are doing a lot of learning as they go.
In Texas, I lived on a little ranch for a while. However, I handled cows, goats, donkeys, cats, and dogs – not vegetables.
Luckily, S comes from a family with green thumbs abundant.

Round one of gardening has included squash, zucchini, potatoes, peppers, tomatoes, okra, melons, beans, and a failed attempt at salad materials (lettuce, kale, etc. They lost their lives in the battle against pests). Here are some pictures:
